Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

If you’re searching for for a way to keep your home comfortable and save money at the same time, look at installing a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats can learn your preferences and schedule. That means they can heat and cool your home when you need it, and cutdown the energy being used when you’re not around. You can even manage them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and flexible than traditional systems.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats are designed to boost energy efficiency and provide homeowners with feedback on energy usage and notifications when the HVAC system needs maintenance or repairs. Some models can learn the patterns within your household and customize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. All of the models can be programmed remotely.

The biggest energy consumer in your home is generally your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively control your home’s energy consumption. If you’re looking for a smart thermostat, here’s what you should watch for:
  • Compatibility—Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. When picking out a thermostat, think about the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to manage.
  • Style—You shouldn’t have an eyesore in the middle of your home. iComfort series thermostats give you the option of upload a personal photo to use as a screensaver. You can choose an image that matches your decorating style or showcases your family.
  • Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to control the temperature in your home based on when you’re at home or elsewhere.
  • Reliability—It should have the capability to hold the temperature close to your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the programmed setting.
